The Process of Praise

The Process of Praise

Children, like adults, want (NEED) to be praised. But how we praise them can have an impact on their mindset. Experts say to instill a “growth mindset” in our children; we should praise the process over the person. That way they recognize the effort it took to get where they are. Praising the person can create a “fixed mindset” making children believe their abilities are innate (which can cause frustration when success doesn’t come easily). So next time, instead of saying, “You’re a good singer,” say, “Good singing!” It just may help them sing even better.
